Work With Me

I’m a freelance writer and blogger who creates bespoke articles for a range of media outlets, including Cosmopolitan, Metro Online, BBC Three and Happiful Magazine. I’m passionate about communicating ideas that inspire and inform, with a specific focus on mental health and wellbeing.  I’m also a media volunteer with Time To Change and have had the opportunity to work with the media, including interviews, documentaries, short films and sharing my poetry for an art installation. Stigma towards mental health issues is still rampant and the more that can be done to break down the barriers the better.

To work with me drop me a message on social media or alternatively you can email me at katconibear@gmail.com
